Old But Gold
As a lover of music, I love listening to the classics just as much as the new singles that artists are releasing today. It transports you to a time where trailblazers such as The Rolling Stones were bringing rock back to life again. Or  when placing The Beatles “A Hard Day’s Night” onto a record player and it fills the room and for a moment you feel as if you’re back in the 60s. All of these artists influenced not only the music industry but also the fashion industry with their way of dressing always coming back into style. Fashion icons like Stevie Nicks, Mick Jagger, and Keith Richards have a way of looking effortless with layers upon layers of accessories and garments galore. 

“Have you any dreams you’d like to sell?”
Stevie Nicks will always be a huge inspiration not only lyrically but also with her lifestyle and her way of dressing. I was lucky enough to see Fleetwood Mac live and she hasn’t changed, with her heeled boots and top hat, it was a treat for the eyes and ears. 
“My dreams are fading down the railway line 
I'm just about a moonlight mile down the road”
  
The Rolling Stones had killer stye with their eccentric take on the trends. Mick & Keith usually took items and inspiration from their girlfriends and I love how they incorporated those pieces into their own wardrobe. I found the "Hot Rocks 1964-1971" record at Other Music in New York and I’m so glad I was able to add it to my record collection. I've also been fortunate enough to see these rock stars live and it was a show I'll never forget!
“Oh make me feel good rock n’ roll band 
I’m your biggest fan
California, I’m coming home”
Joni Mitchell will always be one of the greatest song writers and folk singers in my opinion. This 70s folk icon has inspired so many especially Taylor Swift who is a known Joni admirer. Even in the fashion world she is still regarded as an inspiration, take Hedi Slimane of Saint Laurent for example, who in 2015 included her in a campaign for the Saint Laurent Music Project. 
“I’d be safe and warm if I was in LA, California dreamin’ on such a winter’s day.”
Before going to LA this summer, I made a California themed playlist and of course “California Dreaming” by The Mamas & The Papas was on it. So when I stumbled upon one of their records with this song on it at the Fairfax flea market I had to buy it! 
“I give her all my love
That’s all I do
And if you saw my love
You’d love her to”
Last but certainly not least, I found A Hard Day’s Night at the Lincoln Road flea market and I had to pick it up as it was also in perfect condition. The Beatles are always a go-to for me and never fail to put a smile on my face. They had and still do have a huge impact on the fashion industry. We can also thank Lennon for making the round sunglass shape a staple in the wardrobes of many.

Suki Waterhouse
Suki Waterhouse is one of my favorite style icons. She is effortless and cool and has a style all her own. Suki looks like she came straight from the 60's; turning heads everywhere she goes. She looks young and carefree on the street, yet she is glamorous on the red carpet.
Suki is not only a chameleon in fashion, but also in her career. Suki just released a song called Brutally... which is amazing. She is on the covers of magazines, stars in movies and just started her accessories line: Pop & Suki.
So if you need a little inspiration you should always turn to Suki.
